Things I Have Learned This Evening

1) The United States Army seal is cool.

It reminds me of that bit in Bedknobs and Broomsticks where the substitutiary locomotion spell brings the suits of armour to life and they clank around with no heads and the Germans totally wet themselves.  ("Es ist eine Hexe!!", "Pfft, es gibt keine Hexe." [Miss Price flies overhead on broomstick, waving Union Jack], "ARGH ES IST EINE HEXE!")

2) Slightly out-of-date Morrisons 'Pumpkin Shaped Biscuits With Marshmallow Topping' are not very nice.  They only way to dunk them in your tea is to scrape off all the disturbingly orange marshmallow with your teeth, and only then can you break the biscuit bit into thirds and dunk them, and then they don't even taste very nice.  This disappointing knowledge doesn't give me high hopes for the 'Ghost Crispies ... covered with a chocolate flavoured coating with white sugar paste' that are coming next.

3)  I just spent a few minutes clicking 'Random Article' on Wiki in search of more Things I (could) Learn This Evening, but they all seemed fairly dull, unless you're interested in the Socialist Party of Texas.  Now I'm going to wash my hair.  If I learn anything interesting in the shower, I'll be sure to let you know.

Please feel free to comment with your favourite interesting fact.

  1. If you had been following me on facebook, you would have learned that the difference between A4 and A3 is 141%, and that property prices almost doubled between 1972 and 1974 :)
